I was with a client recently and we were looking at refactoring some of their system to use Prism. This client had created a lot of infrastructure to do what Prism does (before Prism was released for Silverlight) that they wanted to opt into using Prism instead.
I had a chance to sit down (metaphorically) with Dmitry Lyalin and Peter Laudati and talk about Silvelright, MVVM and Prism 2.0. Let me know if you agree, disagree or think that I am a little obsessed with IoC containers.
Erik Mork, Silverlight MVP, host of the SparkingClient Podcast and an instructor for The Silverlight Tour, has compiled a new set of Prism for Silverlight Resources. He recently completed a number of podcasts and videos on how to use Prism in Silverlight. This blog post enumerates the ten things every developer should know about Prism and links over to resources that explain each point. If you're new to Silverlight and have heard a lot about Prism and/or MVVM, this list is worth reading and following.
The new MSDN Magazine is out and my article on creating composite Silverlight applications using Prism is finally available. If you're building large scale Silverlight applications and need to learn how to compose pieces of your application together, go read the article!
I had the recent pleasure of sitting in when Erik Mork interviewed the PnP team responsible for Prism recently. We talked about building large applications, the purpose of parts of Prism and how Prism relates to the original Composite Application Block (CAB).
